There are a lot of special things happening during the summer at Denver Public Libraries and teen volunteers can help make them a success! Are you 12-18 years old? Are you looking for a fun way to give back to your community? Try volunteering at your local branch library!
Do you know exactly the kind of book you want to read next, or are you looking for something different?
Do you really like funny stories? Perhaps steampunk is more your thing? Maybe you need to read some historical fiction for school? Looking for more books like A Child Called It? We have many excellent teen book lists for you to choose from.
Denver teen, Jesus Reyes, age 17, was selected among hundreds of entries as a regional winner of YALSA’s (Young Adult Library Services Association) WrestleMania Reading Challenge, and in March he traveled to Miami where he won the championship which came along with ringside seats to Wrestlemania XXVIII. Reyes, an avid fan of professional wrestling, is a customer at Denver Public Library’s Athmar Park Branch Library.
Did you know that people who volunteer are more likely to be successful in school and at their jobs? Volunteering, whether at the library or another organization, is a great way to positively impact your community while strengthening your own skill set at the same time!
